Hey there saber fans, today I'm bringing to you another Igniter™ R4 conversion. This one is an Ahsoka Tano from Nocturne Armory. Quite some time ago I won this on eBay for far more than I expected to pay but I think it was well worth it for the most part. There's a decent scratch on the control box but it is otherwise an excellent hilt. If you've been watching NA's releases on eBay you'll know that most of his sabers go for quite a bit these days.
This saber is running a LEDengin RGGB in a custom optics can with the greens in parallel. It has a 2W Railmaster bass speaker and pommel recharge. The battery is a dual 18500 pack with nice long run time. It is super light weight and I'm really happy with the overall quality of the build. Pics and video are below. Enjoy!

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
